Disrespect Nobody

The  second phase of the Home Office Disrespect Nobody campaign will run from 2 February until the end of March 2017. The campaign is focussed on digital and mobile first and will also run on TV aimed at young people, such as The Brit Awards and the Big Bang Theory, on radio, Spotify, cinema and online including catch up TV, X-Box, YouTube and Snapchat.  The first TV advert will run in the evening of Thursday 2 February in the Hollyoaks advertising break.

The aim of the Disrespect NoBody campaign is to prevent young people, both boys and girls aged 12 to 18 years old from becoming perpetrators and victims of abusive relationships.

For 2017 the focus of the campaign will be consent and sexting, which are both issues where many young people need more education and information. The campaign advertising directs young people to the website www.disrespectnobody.co.uk where they can get further information and signposts them to organisations who can provide support.

It’s not OKAY

Its Not OKThis week we are supporting the ‘Its not OK’ campaign which is around Child Sexual Exploitation.

The focus of the campaign during this year’s week of action is raising awareness around the strong link between child sexual exploitation and children who go missing.

Going missing can mean bunking off school, staying out overnight, or running away from home for a few days or longer. Whatever the context, the reality is that 95% children at risk from child sexual exploitation have gone missing at least once. Tackling child sexual exploitation is everyone’s responsibility. Fo more information, please visit the following websites:
